Is there any mods tht I can connect an USB device to power some small options from the UP
I know I can do that from my laptop but just wondering if I can have an option from the UP

AFAIK, the UP is a USB device (or peripheral) only.
It cannot be a host or OTG, therefore no 5v supply comes out of it.

There are 5v outputs on the main board to power 5v devices. In order to control them, you would need another computer (raspberry pi?)
